With only 9 days left until our autumn writing conference: Growing Great Writers, we are all busily putting the finishing touches to our workshops. As well as key note talks from the wonderfully inventive Mini Grey, and the font of all English knowledge that is James Clements,  we will have a choice of 6 workshops on offer throughout the day. Details here: growing-great-writers-delegate-pack-2016-v3-blog  James will also be leading a session in addition to his talk.  Each workshop will provide practical advice for how to raise standards in writing and reading.

Traction Man in action



We have provided a sneak-preview of one of our workshops  which features Mini Grey’s fabulous text Traction Man as its inspirational starting point: ‘Shaping up for Success: structuring the teaching sequence to ensure a successful written outcome’.

We look forward to meeting you on the day and sharing more inspirational ideas to support you in raising standards in English over this next academic year.
